VILLAGE NET PORN FURY.

Byline: JOANNE McELGUNN

LOCALS in a small village were horrified after pornographers hacked into their parish website and placed vile sex images on it.

Residents in Allihies, West Cork, were left "shocked and repulsed" after hardcore lesbian images were placed on a site to publicise their village's tourist potential.

Each year hundreds of holidaymakers log on to the site to check Allihie's main attractions, which include hill walking, fishing and bird-watching.

But earlier this week those logging on were greeted by a Miami porn star who urged them to view her live webcam lesbian show.

The woman also boasted that her performance included a segment on the use of sex toys.

Yesterday gardai ordered the removal of the lewd material after contacting the site's web provider.

But locals, who set up the site five years ago, were reeling from the unwanted intrusion and feared the hackers have harmed their image.

Parish co-operative member Tadgh O'Sullivan said: "We're shocked because Allihies has been debased by this. It's shocking."

Local councillor Noel Harrington said: "It is desperate that people were offered porn when they logged on to the site. You just don't expect that.

"Allihies is a beautiful place and it is very popular with tourists. It was terrible the parish got hijacked.

"This could have harmed our image, but I don't think it will. Allihies is a fantastic part of the world and very popular with holiday makers.

"I am delighted that the porn has been removed and I hope the hackers are caught."
